I have 50+ year old concord seed grapes doing great but the 3-4 yr. old Red flame vine leafs out, set grape clusters & then the leaves begin to curl & the grapes dry up but the neighbor Concords doing fine. Local Extension Agent thinks insects, another thinks herbicides, etc. NO herbicides ever used anywhere on the property! Any ideas or should I now dig the Red Flame up & try planting another one or... give up?!! -Vieja
vieja on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you have a disease or fungus spray the reliance with cooper fungicide and fruit spray then you reliance will look like the concords

do I plant the vine with the crown above or below the ground level ?

Don't expect a vineyard your 1st year
I bought 6 of the Flame seedless grape (bareroot) 2 years ago. Planted them in a sunny location after amending the soil as per Stark Bros recommendations. One of the plants never sprouted any buds the first year. "DOA" I thought. A few actually did bear 2-3 clusters of grapes. Tasty! I bought 4 more Flame variety the next year to expand my yield. And, because of my rather inhospitable zone (10A), Flame was the only grape recommended. I went to replace my one aforementioned DOA vine, and it was budding. It's now sprouting like crazy. So . . .give them a chance to get established and you'll be pleasantly surprised. John Knight, San DImas, Ca.

Flame Seedless Grape
A great plant for hardiness zone 8B. Purchased in January 2017 and will harvest first grapes in 2018.

Highly recommend Flame
I planted this three years ago and it's finally producing grapes this spring. The fruit is sweet and, of course, seedless. I live on the Texas coast and was skeptical that I could grow table grapes within seven blocks of the beach. The grapes are smaller than what you find in a supermarket. I enjoy eating them off the vine, which is supported by an arbor.

Flame Red Grapes
Bought my flame grape plant last summer of 15, it was a bare root. I'm just getting small grapes now, spring of 16, can't wait to taste them. So far I recommend this product and have been satisfied with other purchases. Thanks for being trustworthy Stark Bros.

I've never grown grapes before and trying to grow them from bare root stock is a challenge. I have two vines. One is doing well and even has two grape clusters after one year in the ground. The other is struggling a bit but seems healthy. They seem do well in the Houston, TX heat, so they seem good for the zone. I'll know more when I taste the fruit, but overall, I'm satisfied and would recommend them.

The Flane Seedless Grape
I purchased this grape for my personal garden . At this time the new growth is beyond expectation ! Healthy and flourishing in an area where we would not expect anything to be so "HAPPY".. We had a hard dry winter here in this area of Oklahoma , but it didn't seem to bother this grade at all . I look forward to the purchase of several more ! And this is just the first year growth ! Wonderful
